Blazers big man Caleb Swanigan has opted out of the NBA restart in Orlando. It was announced today by Blazers general manager Neil Olshey. Swanigan chose to opt out for personal reasons.
Blazers forward Trevor Ariza already opted out last week and was replaced by guard Jaylen Adams.
Swanigan returned to the Blazers in February in a trade with the Sacramento Kings. Swanigan was traded to the kings last season for Skal Labissiere. Swanigan came to Portland with Trevor Ariza and Wenyen Gabriel in return for Kent Bazemore and Anthony Tolliver.
NBA teams have until August 14th to sign replacement players. The Blazers have 7 days to sign a replacement player after Swanigan informed the Blazers of his intentions not to join the team.
Swanigan filled in at center for Portland while center Jusuf Nurkic healed from a broken leg.
